The 1975 Spread ‘Happiness’ With New Single

The 1975 just released their second single from their upcoming album Being Funny in a Foreign Language titled, “Happiness.”

In a recent interview with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe, frontman Matty Healy revealed the new song doesn’t have much structure and it naturally came out during one of their jamming sessions that they haven’t done in years.

He continued: “We did it in like a day or so, and it’s us having fun. And I think that there’s this real desire in art to see something remarkable with as little technology as possible. Do you know what I mean?”

“Happiness” is a looser, more expansive version of The 1975’s iconic sound. The track bubbles with the bright, boppy energy of their first two albums, but with the complexity and invention of ‘A Brief Inquiry…’ and ‘Notes on a Conditional Form’ spliced in for good measure, it’s the final form of a four-album masterplan.

It comes as no surprise that Jack Antonoff, frontman of Bleachers and Fun was involved in this track. Antonoff connected with Healy over their affinity for production and expressed some of their career goals. Antonoff’s production aspirations were the missing puzzle piece to Healy’s masterpiece in progress. Their working relationship has been described as a refreshing synergy which organically led to Antonoff producing the entire album to come. 

Healy praises Antonoff, I love Jack’s work, and those Lana [Del Rey] records in particular are some of my favorites.”

The 1975 recorded the new record at Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England, as well as Electric Lady Studios in New York.

Aside from releasing “Happiness”, The 1975 also announced their North American tour titled “The 1975 At Their Very Best.”
